Remembrance Tree – 2018 – Kinetic Installation
Remembrance Tree 2018 is a kinetic sculpture/installation consisting of at least 100 or more men’s and women’s white handkerchiefs. Beginning with the collection of my mother’s handkerchiefs and including reclaimed and contributed handkerchiefs, Remembrance Tree’s words and drawings hold hand written thoughts, wishes, loving notes, prayers or messages, poetry, quotes or drawings from each contributor directed to a loved one in remembrance. As the wipers of tears, alluding to loss and mourning handkerchiefs were often retained as keepsakes of a loved one as a memento. Remembrance Tree will become a holder of these memories.
